Description of the issue: When opening a youtube video in a new tab, youtube will take a very very long time to load. It goes to a bare bones youtube screen and none of the buttons on the screen will work. Refreshing does not fix the issue. This does not happen on other browsers like chrome or edge and it does not happen in private mode on brave. Other websites such as twitch or dailymotion work as expected.
Any youtube video that is opened with the “open in new tab” button
@LemonLimme these magic words usually pinpoints that it’s an extension you have that’s causing the problem. If not that, then it’s cookies. But I’d say like 99% of the time it means you have an extension that’s causing problems.
Ive turned of shields and there was no difference. Ive removed all extensions and no change. Ive cleared all cookies incase something else could possibly be affecting it, still did not work. It works fine in private.
I just changed Brave profiles and youtube does work on that profile. Block scripts is not enabled for either profile though.
Same here, btw it’s not going in private mode that makes it work again, it’s being disconnected from youtube, if you disconnect from your google account you will be able to open videos on other tabs. It’s really weird.
Same here. I see its common issue right now when you want to open YT video in new tab.
But what I’ve natioced - it is happening only when I’m logged on my Google/YT account. Maybe it is Google “reward” after sending their messages about blocking ads, because I had blocker, but then I’ve turned it off but Big G remember that I don’t want to pay for Premium.
Does anyone with YT Premium has this problem? It would tell something at least…
Same issue here.
-with all extensions turned off, opening a youtube video in a new tab causes it to stall.
-If I switch to private mode, then youtube works normally.
*I also logged into my youtube account while in private mode, and youtube seems to work normally.
